A couple of weeks ago we had the honour of hosting Dr John Bach for an exclusive webinar looking at how to manage the respiratory system of SMA sufferers.
The webinar was absolutely amazing, a few technical problems here and there, but overall the content was 2.5 hours of brilliant advice that you would struggle to get elsewhere. Dr Bach is a leader in his field with a number of books and hundreds of papers published, so it really is an honour to have him as a friend of TreatSMA. The session focused on non-invasive ventilation, and contained case studies and information of patients that Dr Bach for many years.
